The Storm in the Forest

We had a fairly nasty winter storm covering much of New England yesterday.  Inland, it was just another snow storm.  On the coast, the seas sadly became a lethal hazard.  My home is blessed with a back yard that faces conservation land just twenty feet or so from our back windows.  Until the snow covered the windows, we could see into the forest and experience the storm in a way that was very intimate.  I don’t do well with enforced staying at home, but the forest offered some considerable solace.

You have to admire the ability of nature to withstand it’s own barrage.  Were we all so resilient.

Technical Note:  These images were made with 6K photo on a Panasonic GH5.  It is perfect for capturing action like this.  You hold the shutter down for several seconds capturing thirty 18 mp. jpgs.  You can review the individual images in capture and save those that may have appeal.  It’s a fascinating strategy that I suspect has a great deal of utility for a variety of situations, particularly family and sports.
